Climate refugees, exiles of war, economic migrants, expatriates seeking new opportunities, along with others compelled to flee their current circumstances and look for a new life, are moving across borders. Combine these movers with the billions of religious pilgrims, adventure travelers, and tourists, and we find a movement of humanity en masse in greater numbers than ever in the history of humanity. Combining literature on pilgrimage with travel memoirs and essays on travel, films on the act of walking, and multimedia explorations of refugee journeys, immigrant life, and border crossings, this course seeks to make sense of our unprecedented era of migration.
